How common are medical mistakes?

Medical mistakes in the United States are more common than most people think. Johns Hopkins researchers estimate that as many as 250,000 people die each year due to medical errors. This makes medical mistakes the third leading cause of death in the country. However, millions more survive medical errors and are left dealing with significant consequences.

Some of the most common cases our San Antonio medical malpractice attorneys handle include:

  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Surgical errors
  • Medication errors
  • Anesthesia mistakes
  • Healthcare-acquired infections
  • Emergency room malpractice
  • Failure to diagnose a serious health condition
  • Birth injuries
  • Brain damage

Any medical professional can be held accountable for the mistakes that they make. This includes not only doctors and surgeons, but also nurses, physicians assistants, anesthesiologists, psychiatrists, optometrist, pharmacists, nursing home employees, and more. In some cases, health care facilities in regulatory agencies may also be liable for a medical mistake.
